First time for everything

One of my most favorite things about being a parent is watching my kid do something for the first time. It’s also one of the times it’s easiest to fuck up as a parent.

The Fateful Poo

When my wife and I first became friends, her son was a little over a year old. As a dedicated and awesome Momma she spent as much time with him as possible.  So when I spent time with my friend I got to spend time with him too. He was an adorable loving little guy so this was no hardship at all. One day when we were visiting in the afternoon, she told me it was hard for her in her current situation to take longer than a 3 minute shower unless she took the boys playpen and wedged it[…]
